Plot Summary

In this documentary, veteran filmmaker Harry Moses ("Sex Sells," "The Van") exposes the controversy and culture in the world of high priced artwork. When a 73-year-old former truck driver with an eighth grade education buys a thrift shop painting for five dollars, she has no idea that it would pit her against the highest and mightiest denizens of the art world. But when the painting in question might possibly be the work of American art icon Jackson Pollock and worth over $50 million, she's off on a rollicking adventure and a 15 year fight with the art world that paints a vivid picture of how art is bought and sold in America.

Fresh: Harry Moses' entertaining documentary portrays the debate between connoisseurship and science as a culture war. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: [A] beguiling documentary detective story. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: Fascinatingly ambiguous tale and bizarre cast of characters make it one of the more entertaining documentaries in recent memory. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: While the forensics is marginally interesting, the most arresting piece of the film is Horton herself, as she asks of the art world, 'Who the hell do they think they are?' – Jessica Grose, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Worth renting...

very interesting story about the art world and Jackson Pollock

Who the #$&% is Jackson Pollock?

What a remarkable documentary. Teri Horton is amazing. What a colorful character and what a feisty broad. (a compliment, I assure you). I laughed, cried and got very angry with the "art world elite". I wish Teri nothing but success in her quest to bust the phony art world and get what she deserves for her painting.

What if?

Okay. A truck driver finds a Jackson Pollock in a thrift store in San Berdoo.

Not a great film.

But what if?
